Lyrics

MY BABY WENT TO HEAVEN

Why did I drive that pickup truck
And drink so much that day
I can't believe I took my boy
And put him in harm's way
He was only five years old
The day that time stood still
Oh, my baby went to Heaven
Now I'm doin time in Hell

CHORUS:
I'll pay my debt to society
But I'll never be free again
This prison I hold inside my heart
I know will never end
Just to hold him one last time
My soul I would sell
But my baby went to Heaven
Now I'm doin time in Hell

One year they let me visit him
Down by his tiny grave
I kneeled down close to the ground
And quietly I prayed
I begged him for forgiveness
But I'll never forgive myself
Oh, my baby went to Heaven
Now I'm doin time in Hell

CHORUS:
I'll pay my debt to society
But I'll never be free again
This prison I'll hold inside my heart
I know til the bitter end
Just to hold him one last time
My soul I would sell
But my baby went to Heaven
And I'm doin time in Hell

I dreamed last night, first time in years
Without wakin up in tears
My little boy was standin there
He smiled and came up near
He said, I love you Dad, please don't be sad
Cause I still think you're great
One day soon, with the Good Lord's help
I'll be waitin, at Heaven's gate.

CHORUS:
I'll pay my debt to society
But I want to be free again
This prison I've held inside my heart
I pray, is comin to an end
If I hold him one last time
Though from God's good grace I fell
I know my baby's safe in Heaven
And I'm comin' back from Hell

Oh, my baby went to Heaven
